Positively fetching! That’s what we have to say about all your pets.
From big dogs to little dogs, we love them all. During the 2015 Frontgate Pet Star Photo Challenge, we pawed our way through hundreds of pictures – pets in beds and pets in pools; some warmed with sweaters, others keeping cool.
It was tough, but we groomed the contestant list down to the top 10, then we put it to you to sniff out the top dog.
So, meet Mallow. Wildly wagging her tail, Mallow has now won a $2,500 Frontgate shopping spree for her parents. Despite being a purebred French Bulldog, this 1-year-old lady passes gas like no other and snores like an old man. She loves road trips and will roll down her own window to enjoy the wind blowing in her face. See more of Mallow on Instagram at @mallowfrenchie
Taking second place was Finn, a 4-year-old Labrador Retriever/Great Dane mix. Once abandoned, this gentle giant now happily roams about on 10 acres outside Dallas, playing with his adopted family and the other animals. Finn also loves to go camping and hiking, and he even wears his own doggie backpack and carries his own food.
Our third place winners also love hiking. Jaxx is a 2-year-old Golden Retriever and Jack is a 10-month-old Goldendoodle (pictured here at 10 weeks old). Let’s just hope they don’t run into a bear in the woods … both share the trait of being afraid of everything! Track their adventures on Instagram at @RoxyandJaxx

In the hushed halls of high-end interior design, the Scalamandré name stands for nearly cinematic artistry.
Founded in 1929 by Italian immigrants Franco and Flora Scalamandré, the firm quickly established itself as the go-to resource for historically accurate reproductions of fine silk fabrics, almost all created in the company’s own mill in Long Island City, New York.
Since then, the company’s decorative textiles have graced the State Rooms of the White House, the curtain of the Metropolitan Opera, and the halls of the finest homes in the world.
Tell us. What’s your favorite Scalamandré print?

Few interior design schemes can capture the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s golden age and still feel avant-garde. Unless it’s the Viceroy Hotel in sunlit Santa Monica. Like a starlet whose beauty never dims, this boutique hotel beguiles with provocative color, witty details and undeniable sex appeal.
This unexpected yet ever-so-refined atmosphere is what attracts natives and nomads alike. Well-heeled and equally well-dressed, they gather nightly to wine, dine and unwind.
Just off the lobby, the Cameo Bar beckons with an intriguing menu of decidedly grown-up cocktails. Drinks in hand, the crowd flows seamlessly from indoors to out, spilling onto the candlelit pool deck to lounge in one of the signature cabanas.
Nestled against the backdrop of soaring palm and high hedgerows, these irresistible cabanas make you feel cosmopolitan and charismatic. Both glamorous and comfortable, they become a destination in and of themselves.
Dazzling color, enchanting cabanas and an expansive pool. We loved the ambience so much, we thought it was the perfect place to showcase our inspired 2015 outdoor furniture collections. You can recreate the look at home just as we have here. Then you can escape to the glitz and glamour of L.A. anytime you want.

Cafés have long lured creative thinkers. Take some time to sit back, enjoy the view and let yourself be inspired.
Of his adopted city, Hemingway called Paris a “moveable feast.” No doubt he was referring to the fascinating flow of humanity observed from his café chair.
From Amsterdam to Rome, some of the best sights in Europe aren’t tourist destinations like museums or cathedrals. They’re the constantly changing views that can be observed from the vantage point of a café chair.
Coffee culture has its origins in Turkey, so it’s no surprise that the first coffee house opened in Istanbul in the 14th century. After reaching Venice three centuries later, cafés began percolating throughout the rest of Europe.
These days, coffee chains can be found on practically every corner of a busy downtown, but initially, it was the unique character, languid pace and exchange of ideas that drew students, expatriates, writers, artists and revolutionaries. It’s not hard to imagine Rimbaud lost in a poem amongst the din or van Gogh sketching the rough drawings for a masterpiece.
Even if you don’t live in a bustling metropolis, you can still recreate a café atmosphere at home.
Our Paris Bistro Collection beautifully authenticates the bent rattan design of French café seating.
Capturing the charm of an outdoor bistro is our elegantly shaped wrought iron Rivoli Collection. For a decidedly Mediterranean flair, our handpainted Italian tables will make you feel like you’re tucked into your own quiet courtyard off the Piazza di Spagna.
Each of these sets enlivens an outdoor space with café style, sure to make your own space feel like a moveable feast.
